In addition to working on new songs, the band has been very busy with other projects. Here's what they've been up to:

Britt covered the Crooked Fingers song "Run, Lieutenant, Run" for a digital-only Crooked Fingers EP entitled Your Control, which will be available on iTunes on March 3rd. He spent the past three months producing the new album by Brooklyn's White Rabbits, which he says "was like summer camp, only in the dead of winter, in Brooklyn, with a bunch of chain-smokers." The record was mixed in January with longtime Spoon collaborator Mike McCarthy and it comes out on TBD Records on May 19th.

Jim produced the excellent debut LP by Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, which came out on January 27 on Lost Highway.

Rob is doing some shows with the Get Up Kids throughout this year and he will also be looking after Jeff Byrd from time to time.

Eric has been spending time in Texas and New York working on a solo project.

Red Hot
Spoon contributed a song entitled "Well-Alright" to a new Red Hot compilation called Dark Was The Night, which was just released worldwide on 4AD. This album is composed of 31 exclusive tracks by different bands and is available as a double cd or a triple vinyl (or a download.) It benefits the Red Hot Organization – an international charity dedicated to raising money and awareness for HIV and AIDS. For more information, go here.
